This special issue of the Journal of Corporate Citizenship honours the voice of the Changemaker, Wayfinder, Edgewalker, and Intellectual Shaman in particular. It is contended that we can all become Shamans, Wayfinders, and Edgewalkers, if we open up to the possibility that our work, whatever it is, is part of the healing process. With contributions from North America, Europe, Africa and Australasia, this issue addresses the ideas of corporate citizenship from perspectives entirely removed from the mainstream.
